    In what way??

    If you right-click the icon in your systray and select Shutdown AVG Control Center, you will close the app.


    Do you wish to uninstall it, then go through your Control Panel and go to Add/Remove Programs.

    Do you wish to keep it from running at Startup? go to Start, Run and enter regedit then hit Enter

    navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run and in the right-pane, select AVG_CC and delete it.

    are one of these what you wanted?

    Afterwards, go to Start, Programs, AVG, and select AVG Control Center.

    or just reboot:)

    Thank you for the prompt and to the point answer. I'll make a note of it and use it when I D/L SP2. Sorry for the underlined typo on my previous post. :eek:
